Mating Fairy Shrimp (Artemia Species), Carrizo Plain National Monument, California. Members of the genus Artemia are very difficult to classify by species as they have few anatomical differences. They live in a great array of highly concentrated chemical habitats almost always high in Chloride. They are familiar to kids who read comic books as sea monkeys and are also known as brine shrimp.
